   Nov-18-19 Geller vs Karpov, 1976 (replies)
Caissas Clown: <schnarre>: I'm embarrassed to admit that until today , I did not know he'd ever played it. But there it is in the database : 5 wins,12 draws, 2 losses. Two of the wins,he was 10/11 years old,two were in the Melody Amber Rapid,one in a simul.
   Oct-07-19 Tal vs P Mejic, 1974 (replies)
Caissas Clown: Tal the Mejician.
   Aug-29-19 Polugaevsky vs A David, 1994
Caissas Clown: Fascinating game. Was Lev undone due to underestimating his opponent?? Or was it more likely his illness,which took him from us the following year?
   Aug-29-19 A David vs Das Arpan, 2018 (replies)
Caissas Clown: Dear oh dear! I was in "Monday Mode",so wasted a few minutes trying to make 26.Qxh7 work i/o 26.Nxh7! Once I fixed that,I thought it was fairly simple for a Thursday puzzle.
   Aug-08-19 Serper vs I Nikolaidis, 1993
Caissas Clown: I have just watched a wonderfully precise endgame by Capablanca. Instructive,sure - but I would much sooner watch a game like this.Absolutely electric!
   Jul-30-19 Kamsky vs Karpov, 1996
Caissas Clown: Gettin' old - took me over 5 minutes to realise why 20...Rxc3 would have been a blunder.
   Jul-22-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs Nisipeanu, 2019
Caissas Clown: Difficult to believe that a GM could play so poorly.I know this Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 is a disaster,but that was due to bad calculation,rather than terrible strategy.
   Jul-22-19 Kotronias vs N Kalesis, 1994 (replies)
Caissas Clown: I've seen a very similar deflection/interference theme before,but not this particular game. I*thought* it was demonstrated in one of Reti's wins, but I'm not certain.Any ideas ??
   Jul-03-19 M Al Sayed vs V Korchmar, 2009 (replies)
Caissas Clown: That bishop on d7 is not bad.It's positively evil!
   Oct-15-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
Caissas Clown: sotto voce meo : Indeed ! When I saw that neither Qxb4 nor Qg5 worked,I started to doubt it was Monday !
